The LCHA's Safety Committee has been in existence since 1994. The committee meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 1:00 pm in the first floor conference room of the Main Office at 325 Church Street.
The LCHA Safety Committee has been responsible for developing and maintaining The Safety Rules Handbook for Employees and they continue to develop proactive safety, health, and accident prevention programs in order to provide a safe work environment at the Lancaster City Housing Authority.
The Safety Committee consists of four volunteer LCHA employees. There is equal representation for management employees and non-management employees. Each employee volunteer serves a two-year term. Every year two of the volunteers are rotated off the committee and replaced by two new volunteers. The rotating committee pattern provides the committee with new ideas, continual leadership and responsibility and presents the opportunity for all LCHA employee to serve as a committee member.
The LCHA Safety Committee achieved its Workplace Certification from the PA Department of Labor & Industry in 1996 and in 1998 it received the H.A.R.I.E. (Housing & Redevelopment Insurance Exchange) Safety Award.
The Safety Committee sponsors a "Safety & Wellness Day" for LCHA employees held in each year in June in observance of National Safety Month.
